For those who are wondering, a brief overview:
One night, I had a dream. It was 1555 and Darla, Spike, Drucilla and Angelus were wandering around 1555 Europe (I blame Neil Gaiman's 1601 myself). Elizabeth was the Queen of the Kingdom of York and Scotland, the Slayer Queen. A darkness was rising, or falling, as darkness often will.
So, I decided to write it out and see where the story went.
Introduction - In which our main characters hangeth abouteth, yeah verily
Chapter 1 - The plot begineth
Chapter 2 - Lost wanderething aroundeth in darkest sewer/wood/dream, the true way many chapters aheadeth.
Chapter 3 - Characters canter to points of some excitement.
Chapter 4 - Some revelations, some journeys. Pieces move about the board.
These aren't necessarily the sources I used, nor certainly the only sources on these subjects, but I like the footnotes, even when they're endnotes.
Innocenzo del Monte/Pope Julius III
Suleiman the Lawgiver
Knights of Malta
